Thanksgiving Meals for Newporters in Need


  • IYAC 536 Thames Street Newport, RI, 02840 United States (map)

Please Join Us to Raise Funds.

It’s that time of year; time for family, friends and feasting. Feasting for some, but others in our community are struggling. We are organizing the yachting community to raise funds for our neighbors in need. We have three events planned: one at the Fastnet Pub, 1 Broadway (Friday, Nov. 4 from 6:00-7:30pm) and two at the IYAC, 536 Thames Street, (Friday, Nov. 11 from 6-8pm & Thursday, Nov. 17 from 6-8pm).

Also on Wednesday Nov 16, Carrie and Ann will be at the Marine Industry Drinks at the Clarke Cooke House if you would like to give them a donation there.

If you would like to participate, we would love your help! Cash donations will be used to purchase fresh food. Each meal for a family of 4 is estimated to be about $40. Suggested donation is $20, but anything would be great. And if you only have time, we could use that too.

On November 11th and 17th at the IYAC we will also be collecting non-perishable food for Martin Luther King Center and gently used coats, hats, scarves and gloves for Seaman’s Church Institute. Both Martin Luther King and Seaman’s Church are already collecting and you can drop off any time.

Thanksgiving Meal Menu
It’s important to us to give healthy meals, so our menu will be full of real food: Turkey, Potatoes for Mashing, Fresh Carrots and Onions, Green Beans and Corn, Corn Bread, Cranberries, Apple/Cranberry Juice, Milk, and Pumpkin/Apple Pie

Sincerely,
Carrie Fletcher, Lisa Charrier,
Ann Souder, Toni Mills, Holly Paterson
